AdminHistoryThe papers listed below are composed of three distinct but related small groups. Earliest in date are those of William Mackenzie of Loveday Street, Birmingham, cooper and timber merchant, 1808-1834. These are composed largely of personal correspondence and bills, and include many letters from poor relatives in Scotland and Birmingham appealing for financial assistance. The Mackenzie papers apparently passed into the hands of his executor, William Soutter, a collection of whose bills for 1868 and 1870 form the second group. The third group are the papers of Mrs. Margaret Ann Brown of Hamstead, Handsworth. They comprise her letters, bills and balances of account relating to the wholesale supply of goods to W. Phillipps and Son of Auckland, New Zealand. It is not clear how these papers came into the Soutter family, but Mrs. Brown dealt with Soutter on at least one occasion, and it may be that there was a business connection between the two firms.
